(hennemusic) U2 frontman Bono has received France's highest cultural honor for his contribution to music and commitment to humanitarian causes, according to the BBC.

Bono was presented with the Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters by French Culture Minister Aurelie Filippetti in Paris. Bono said the award belonged to his band. "I've got the biggest mouth and the loudest voice but the music we make comes from each other," he said.

Mr Filippetti praised the singer saying: "You committed yourself and dedicated your fame and career to wage some of the greatest wars of our time. Not for charity's sake but in the name of justice." more on this story
